Some Precious Pages Of The Sikh History - Book By Dr Jasbir Singh Sarna

Preface To 'Some Precious Pages Of The Sikh History' By Dr Jasbir Singh Sarna

The Sikhism is one of the most Oecunmencial and unique modern religion emerged on the globe. Ten Sikh Gurus nurtured it. Its teachings are enshrined in the Guru Granth Sahib, which is revered as the Guru eternal. Sikhism preaches the oneness of God and universal brotherhood of man.
 
It has been my long cherished desire to publish all those articles in a book, which were published in different Magzines/Journals. The present treatise at hand give the informative and critical account of most of the Sikh concepts, historiography and theiir echo.

Foreword To 'Some Precious Pages Of The Sikh History' By Dr Jasbir Singh Sarna
 
S. Jasbir Singh Srana is one of the most prolific Sikh authors of our times. He resides away from Punjab, but he continues to live with the message of Sikhism. In a sense, he represents a diasporan Sikh within India, but outside Punjab. He writes in Punjabi and English and he has so far around twenty eight books to his credit, many of them are dealing with the Sikh history and culture, religion and environment.  He is a good poet and his earliest collection of poetry was published in 1980. It was in Punjabi and its name is 'Sabadnamah'. Later on his few volumes of essays were brought out.
 
But S. Sarna is most widely known for his pioneering study on the history of the Sikhs in Jammu and Kashmir, it is based on his critical analysis of different categories of sources available in Punjabi, Urdu, Persian, Kashmiri and English languages.
 
S. Sarna has to his credit a few important works on the history and religion of the Sikhs. His 'Sikh shrines in Jammu and Kashmir' (1994). It was later on printed in Punjabi, but he had made certain revisions in its text (2005). His monogram on the history of the 'Sikh Students Federation' is another significant contribution of S.Sarna.
 
He resides away from Punjab. But his love and association with Punjab continues to reach new heights in the recent writings. I regard him a front ranking creative author and a critical student of Sikh history. I am sure that he would continue to make many  more invaluable contributions in the coming year of his life.'
